Diddy Confirmed As Nicki Minaj’s Manager…
It looks as though those rumors of Diddy managing Nicki Minaj are true. According To Billboard, Diddy is now co-managing Nicki Minaj as well as Rick Ross. They also cleared up the rumors of her being managed by Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter as well. Lady Gaga was not having that!
According to our source, Minaj subsequently went on to seek management from Troy Carter, Lady Gaga’s manager. Although some websites claim to have confirmed that Carter is co-managing Minaj with Diddy, our source says it isn’t the case and that Gaga pumped the breaks on the deal, threatening to find another manager if Carter took on Minaj as well. When that happened, Carter stepped back and Diddy stepped in, asking one of his own managers, James Cruz, to co-manage Minaj with him instead.
Looks like my source had it right all along in regards to Diddy & James Cruz. Interesting…
In the meantime, her ex-manager Deb was fired a month before the whole Nicki Minaj/Rihanna tour fiasco. However, she says she won’t be throwing dirt on her name. She tells Billboard:
“I’m not gonna sit here and drop a bunch of bombs on her now, even though she really, really disappointed me. Now Nicki did fire me. She did”
Deb know she waiting for that book deal. j/k ^_^
Diddy is doing the most. Can’t wait to see what they got in store
